Purple Frog is a family owned market farm in Whitefish, Montana.
Since 1991, Pam Gerwe and Mike Jopek have slowly coaxed this farm out of rocky clay soil with the help of countless volunteers, community members, and young people. We're a small local farm near the 49th parallel north and grow food for many locals and some tourists visiting our great town.
We do not use genetically modified seed nor do we use synthetic pesticides or herbicides. We've enjoyed much success with certified paper mulch. Benefits include weed suppression, water retention and warmer soils. We do drip irrgation with field crops and hoophouse production. We spend a lot of time building soil and mulching. The secret to good food is good soil.
We grow berries, fruits and vegetables. Food like raspberries, pears and lettuce or garlic.
We are pleased to offer CSA shares for the 2017 season. We will grow a limited amount of 20 week Crop CSA shares and a 6 or 12 week Flower CSA share with pickup at the farm on Fridays or the downtown Whitefish farmers' market on Tuesdays.
The $20 'kale card' and the $50 'chard card' are also available. Pick up one for you or a friend. Redeem either 'punchcard' for any crop we grow at Tuesdays's downtown Whitefish farmers' markets or at the Salad BarN -our on-farm produce stand open only late spring to early fall Fridays 5:00 - 7:30 PM.
For Crop CSAs, Flower CSAs, or punchcards, you can also mail a check: Purple Frog Gardens 170 Blanchard Lake Drive Whitefish Montana 59937
Summer volunteer days are on Wednesday mornings and the farm dinners for 2017 pending.
